Ghent University

History

In comparison with other European universities, the Ghent Alma Mater is relatively young. The institution was inaugurated on October 9, 1817, after King William I in the preceding year had proclaimed the establishment of three universities in the Southern Netherlands.

Education

All bachelor programmes and most masters are instructed in Dutch. The language of instruction of each programme is mentioned in the course catalogue.The English version of the course catalogue is a translation of the course catalogue in Dutch and does not imply that the programme will be instructed in English.A few master programmes are partly taught in English and partly in Dutch. As the official language of these programmes is Dutch, the Dutch language requirements apply.
